Ingestion of harmful substances causes toxic hepatitis, which is an inflammation of the liver.
Chemicals, narcotics, and alcohol are all cleansed by the liver. Toxic hepatitis can develop from these chemicals or substances causing substantial liver damage.
After being exposed, the illness can manifest within hours or days. In some situations, signs and symptoms do not develop until months after persistent usage of these substances.
What Are the Causes of Toxic Hepatitis?
1. Excessive alcohol use can harm the liver. Excessive drinking, on the other hand, can cause a variety of problems. Heavy drinking can result in liver failure in some persons and chronic liver disease in others.
2. Pharmaceuticals or drugs can injure the liver. The vast majority of linked instances are insignificant, and only blood testing can establish their existence. Drug use can be reduced or eliminated, which can aid in the treatment of the disease.
Some patients, however, have unusual medication reactions, which result in severe liver cell damage and fast liver failure in rare cases.
Patients who are having a severe idiosyncratic drug reaction should immediately cease taking their prescription.
3. Several herbs and nutritional supplements have been related to toxic hepatitis. Ghanaians typically use the former as a cure for a variety of ailments, whereas the latter is primarily used for bodybuilding or as a nutritional supplement.
According to investigations, steroids and antibiotics have been discovered in some plants and nutritional supplements.
Unless their doctor has granted them permission, those with liver problems should avoid using herbs or nutritional supplements.
